    Heck of a way to get a kid started. He's likely to spend a great many years in pursuit of anything bigger than 11 though HA!

    Congrats.

    He may well find one that scores higher next year, but points wise 11 is tough to come by and bigger is just plain rare.

    I hope you have it mounted for him. I killed my first deer when I was 8 and I was just prouder than hell to have "killed me an 8 point". Poor little thing, it has about an 8" spread too HA! It honestly looks like a miniature that goes on a 1/3 scale mock up of a nice deer LOL

    Congrats again to the little guy.

    Nice story, congratulations. I'm 54 and haven't got one that big, but maybe next year!
